So where to start on a review of this book... I decided to continue reading some of Kazuo Ishiguro's works, and this was the next book I decided to read. And to be perfectly frank, I do not feel I am up to the task of criticizing it. This book almost ended up in my abandoned book pile, but it was only saved because of the author. I want to see if Ishiguro can be listed as a favorite author or if he is merely the author of one of my favorite books.
I did not enjoy reading this book, nor did I understand it, but I won't say it was a bad book. It is written in a surreal manner and filled with metaphor and analogies. I really was not up to figuring out what the author was really talking about. Even with all of that, I was pulled to keep reading about the characters. I think I wanted to know what happened between Mr. Ryder and his son August.
I may revisit this book... or not, only time will tell.
